Ragazzi, break out the pasta and Lambrusco!

In the seventies, Ferrari's mechanics were just as hard-working as the next team's personnel but when mid-day came around, the Scuderia's lunch break was sacred.

It wasn't quite today's equivalent of eating in the team's garage while staring at a computer screen, but an outfit's racing hardware often served as a handy makeshift table to savour the indispensable 'plat du jour': a dish of linguine washed down with a vital paper glass - or two, or three - of Lambrusco.

Here, famed Scuderia chief mechanic Ermanno Cuoghi is joined by a colleague during his brief but well-deserved break.
